FY2014-2015 Student Success Funding SSF

The Fiscal Year 2014-2015 Student Success Funding (SSF) calculations have been made. Below is a list by school, with subtotals by LEA. Please email any questions regarding this worksheet or calculations to SchoolFinance@azed.gov.   Questions will be responded to in the order they are received. 

Be sure to submit SSF questions as soon as possible, as SSF payments will be distributed in Mid-November.  A separate e-mail will be sent to each school district and charter school receiving SSF.  If this is not received by October 17th, please e-mail the School Finance Inbox using the address above.

Student Success Funding is exempt from the Revenue Control Limit.  Each school district and charter schools is required to establish a local level Student Success Fund (Program for charter schools) for the accounting of revenues and expenditures.  A report of expenditures will be due by October 15, 2015  (A template will be provided.).

The projected reduction is approximately 5.0298%. It is calculated based on the June 1st 2014, 100th day ADM.

For FY2015, Payment 1 (8/1/2014), the calculation will be based on estimated counts and will be finalized once 100th ADM is available for all LEAs.

CSF Payment 9 Correction Notice

The CSF payment 9 report dated 3/27/2014 contains an incorrect Per Pupil Amount, $401.00.  $401 is in error, it should be $310. This has to do with a refresh of the CSF system and will be resolved in time for CSF payment 10, to be made in April.

We apologize for the confusion and thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.
